We sit down and talk to both Samantha Buck and Danielle DiGiacomo which are Producers of The documentary called Best Kept Secret, which follows a spirited and dedicated teacher in Newark, NJ as she struggles to prepare her autistic students to transition from safe and protective environment of school to the daunting and sometimes harsh realities of independent adulthood. With an intimate eye, Best Kept Secret reveals the politically overlooked and economically neglected network of organizations, families and caretakers living and working with developmentally disabled people and their energetic fight for a brighter future. The documentary has fascinated both critics and audiences alike, but gained the most support from people closely linked to the world of special education.
Best Kept Secret will be opening in NYC at MIST Harlem Theatre & IFC Center on 9/5 and LA at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 on 9/6. You can find more information about Best Kept Secret below, and watch the trailer here
